THE ARENAL REGION AND LOCAL ACIVITIES:

The region of Arenal, Costa Rica centers itself around Lake Arenal and the Arenal Volcano. Located approximately 14 miles outside of La Fortuna, a popular tourist town, the charming Village of El Castillo awaits you with everything you need to enjoy luxury and relaxation and still see the 'real' Costa Rica. Although tucked away and private, Castillo is also home to The Butterfly Conservatory, Snake Zoo, The National Park Arenal 1968, and a diverse selection of restaurants.

If action and adventure are what you are looking for, Sky Trek, the largest zip line over the Canopy in Costa Rica as well as hanging bridges and sky tram, are located right in our village! There are horseback tours to scenic waterfalls, or kayaking on the lake. There are also repelling and many organized nature hikes and tours that center around the volcano. If you like to push yourself, there are also off road bicycle tours in the hills around El Castillo as well as guided hiking tours through the rain forest. In and on the way to La Fortuna you can find White Water Rafting, a number of hot springs pools facilities, ATV tours, and many other adventures.

After your exciting days of adventure you can leave the fast pace of tourism and go back to your home in El Castillo, traveling through tunnels of rain forest and the beautiful countryside in and around the beautiful village of El Castillo. There you can relax and listen to the Howler Monkeys and enjoy a leisurely dinner and sit outside (or inside) and enjoy the pleasant breezes all the while relaxing in a tropical forest, enjoying the wonderful view, the wildlife and the quiet country atmosphere.

After a wonderful night's sleep in the comfort of custom made beds and orthopedic mattresses, you will awaken to the singing of hundreds of different species of birds and in the background, the howler monkeys sing their own morning song. Just a short walk across the street you will find a beautiful river for your swimming enjoyment and there are several local waterfalls that can be accessed by horse or hike A bird watchers' paradise and a relaxing retreat for nature lovers young and old. Villa Millon is the place to go when you want to get off the beaten path of tourism and explore.

traveler reviews for this lake arenal house rental

It was clean, and sufficiently supplied!

Review submitted: July 23, 2014   Date of arrival: October 20, 2013

This was a great get away. Spectacular views and we were able to do everything outdoors even in the rainy season. The house was very beautiful, well decorated with hardwoods and well supplied for sleeping "most comfortable beds" and cooking, if you choose to fix your own meals. The local food was amazing and don't forget to try the homemade sour cream! Cookies and horse riding can be found a short distance from the house. Daily hikes are a must just too much to see and do, waterfalls, hikes by the volcano, zip lines, and then go and enjoy the spas. If you are a camera enthusiast the butterfly conservatory and all of the rain forest plants await your eye,. If you are in need of assistance the managers here are the best!

Great location for the area

Review submitted: February 18, 2013   Date of arrival: January 28, 2013

We enjoyed this property very much as it was a great location for the activities we were interested in.The Sky Trek Zip Line experience was terrific, the butterfly tour included a nature hike, We loved eating at the local "soda" and found a wonderful working farm for a great meal experience. There are many very good restraunts close by, (we enjoyed the Fusion) Next door to the propery is a couple that have beautiful art and crafts shop alone with some very good baked cookeis!! The village of El Castilla was just what we were hoping for, the property was comfortable and quite and clean. The on site manager for the home was very helpful to us.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, sight seeing

Review submitted: February 3, 2013   Date of arrival: January 23, 2013

Thanks to Nancy and Julia for their hospitality!! We certainly hope to be back...
This home is beautiful and is located in a magnificent setting on the hill in El Castillo. The home affords front row viewing of Arenal, is surrounded by excellent neighbors and is within reasonable walking distance to the Butterfly Conservatory and town. Although we never saw any howler monkeys on the property we could hear them close by every morning and evening. We had the good fortune of visiting with a number of neighbors and neighborhood children and they were all warm, friendly and fun!! We thoroughly enjoyed the daily pace of the village and watching the cows commute to and from their pastures. Thanks to Julia's husband, Lilander, for the excellent horseback ride and for allowing our two young children to visit with his horses and dogs! We prepared most of our meals in house and the amenities were just what we needed.The washing machine was an added bonus. We did enjoy wholesome and yummy bread, cookies and sandwiches from Thomas and Hanna at La Gavilana which is located just down the street. The local Soda was great and the kids really enjoyed Pizza Johns. There are so many fun hikes and activities in the area that we hope to return to see more... Thanks again for a wonderful base of operations!!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thanks so much for your kind words. I am so glad that you enjoyed our special spot in the rainforest and I hope you will return someday soon!
